Because its the door that is always unlocking and locking, the tumblers inside the lock wear. try replacing lock or spray inside it with wd40 or similar. good luck

SOURCE: Reverse gear on 1988 Chevy C1500 automatic transmission

sounds like the reverse clutch is shot, pull the pan and look for allot of grey material in the pan, some is normal but a big pile is trouble, if it is not to bad change the fluid and filter and use the new DEXRON 6 fluid, it is compatable with all GM automatics, keep your fingers crossed and it should give you a little while longer before u need an overhaul..

bad design flaw with the transmission kick down cable make sure you are in OD first but if you are then this cable is adjustable it is next to the throttle cable and tells the trans when to downshift only adjust very little increments as this can easily blow your tanni as you may already know this feeling

SOURCE: 1988 chevy c1500 problem with second gear

be 1988 and Im sure it has high miles, sound like worn transmission, transmission flush and replace it with new fluid might help some. get use tranny from a junk yard better and cost lot less than rebuilt. being GM mechanic for many years i see transmission on a truck with 100k tend to have leaks or need rebuilding. again i see some have better luck but rear.

SOURCE: how do i replace a heater core on a 1988 chevy

You wll need to first undo the heater hoses at the firewall to the core, then under the dah you will need to dismantle the heater box, the core is located inside this box, assembly is the reversal, heater core is about $40. time consuming and hard on the back but not hard. Remember we are here to give as much help as we can without seeing the car so, I hope this helps somewhat, good luck.

How do I unlock & open drivers side door, when key & key fab won't work?


Why won't key work in door? Most likely not used? Spray wd-40 in door lock and insert key moving it back and forth in a sawing motion. This will usually free up a sticky lock and you can then turn it. Most lock out companies use a long metal rod. They will pry back the top of the door where it meets the roof and insert a wedge to hold the door slightly ajar and then insert the rod which has a hook to catch the lock and unlock it. A coat hanger unfolded will usually do the trick with a little patience. If not, the only other way is to disassemble the inner door panel ( usually causing damage ) to get the door open

Battery dead on car, so door wont unlock now...so how do ya get in truck to charge?? anyway to get into hood or open it with dead battery or at least get to the thingy to chance under the hood


not familiar with that vehicle, but sometimes if u can jack up the vehicle n get underneath u can manually open the hood by pushing on the locking latch...also if you have jumper cables u can run them from another battery to yours under the hood while ur underneath...b careful!! n always hook up positive FIRST!!...

I used to be able to unlock all the doors by turning the key back and forth in the drivers or passenger side door. Now I can only open all the door on the passenger side. Is there some type of fuse that...


you need a new door lock mechanism in the drivers side door ,this is a fairly common problem with the ford focus as well as the cars must use the same parts ,the mechanism in the door is also the switch for the central locking and they do go wrong with time iam afraid

Drivers power lock will not unlock with remote.


the door lock actuator is defective, they get really hard to move when they go bad, that is why the difficulty with the key.

Passenger and driver side door locks are hard to open with key


Take a can of WD40 (the newer can) with the spray straw...carefully insert the straw into the key hole as far as you can...spray and use the key to turn the assembly..lock and unlock several times CAREFULLY so you don't break off the key..sounds like you just need a little lube on the lock assembly.

I hope this helps you and your son
